As I was beginning to get organized regarding my upcoming concert planned for May 23rd, the earthquake in Nepal happened. Right away I knew that I wanted to turn my concert into an event that could at least in some small way benefit the Nepalese people who have suffered such incredible devastation.
I thought it fitting that music inspired by the gorgeous mountain landscapes of Norway could benefit people in another part of the world who also live among gorgeous mountain landscapes. Joining me will be my good friends Donna-Claire McLeod, oboist, and Jill Solomon, bassoonist. We are reuniting as 'Trio Roseau' for this concert, and I have arranged some of Grieg's music especially for this ensemble for this occasion.
Please consider purchasing tickets to the event, or making a donation.
$10 from each ticket will go to the Humanitarian Coalition's Earthquake Relief Fund. Tickets are available online here.
